Tired of websites asking for your location when you consult them through your iPhone or yours iPad? You have certainly noticed that some sites have pop-ups asking for location access, while on some sites it is necessary for them to function (delivery sites, for example), on other sites it is certainly not necessary.
Similar to how applications are installed on your iPhone and iPads ask for location access to unlock certain features or show custom ads, also sites sometimes need to access our location to get some things done.
In Safari, when any website tries to access the location, it will receive a popup and will have the opportunity to authorize or deny access to it. The problem is that certain websites show these windows repeatedly, when it’s not needed or because you don’t want to share your location with the website.
Unless the site needs your location to activate some specific features, you’ll want to avoid these requests. In this article, we’ll show you how you can block access to your location on websites.
